The King Khan underwent the much-needed shoulder surgery yesterday (16th February, 2009). The star rushed from London, where he had been with Lara Dutta and Irrfan Khan, to promote his latest venture Billu. Shah Rukh Khan had hurt his shoulder while shooting for the film Dulha Mil Gaya, but put off the surgery as he had to complete Billu and promote the film. The operation was performed by a team of doctors headed by Dr. Sanjay Desai.
Doctors at the Breach Candy Hospital in Mumbai said that the surgery was successful and that SRK would be out of action for at least four to six weeks. Shah Rukh will resume shooting soon after he recovers fully, probably in mid-March, says sources close to the actor.
